Quote for the Day

Worldwide terrorism has increased dramatically since the invasion of Iraq, which is now being waged, we are told, to keep us safe from terrorism. It’s not working… This is the logic of our time: it is better to go on killing more of them, even if they go on killing more of us, so that we can remind everyone how vital it is that we kill more of them first.
It all reminds me of the shortest verse in the New Testament: ‘Jesus wept’ (John 11:35).
